    Ground is top frozen, by an inch or two. Temps Monday in mid 40's should take care of that and we should be back at it. Way too early for this cold weather, I don't care if I never see snow this winter. I have enough other stuff to keep us busy.

    Below is a pic from the job on page 110 that's opened up, pool will be shot this week, footers in, etc. We should be prepping base mid December if the winter holds and my travertine arrives on time.

    The shop expansion I really want to do my self with all the displays and structure out front. Right now I don't have the time and I'm not hiring more guys, I already took on three in the last month. My goal is to have it done by April, we shall see.

    Nice comment Todd. You wouldn't believe hold cold it was up here Saturday morning, wait, yes you would. Good to see you.

    Nice work do you think the weather will set you back on the current project or did you allow a few extra days in case of freezing ? It was 32 degrees here but no ice we are lucky to see sleet we had the roads ice over one time in the early 1990s

    Man I hate the muddy fall. At times I'm not sure which is worse the frozen ground or the mud. This is where if you don't have a track machine you're done.

    Kitchen is underway. All stainless steel appliances were ordered. 48" grill, sink, fridge, burners, cabinets, etc. About 2000 sf of pavers are down 800 sf to go, upper tier done next week, and on out the driveway we go for another 2000 sf. We'll probably block the kitchen up and come back and stone it later, drop appliances in, and put the granite top on. We're doing all the work in house. Another job is calling....

    I was sorta wondering the same. I would have thought it would be 2 or 3 courses from the top.

    Also, how old are those houses? All the backyards look pretty bare.

    Actually you really don't even need the grid to be fully honest in this application according to most manufacturers. We're just putting it in as a precautionary measure. The wall is only 2 1/2 feet high. We'll backfill the wall with clean stone up to the grid level. Pull it out and stone the rest in with modified. The above patio is down to subgrade. We'll be buring the grid under 8" of modified stone. That'll be plenty for that small wall.
